By some estimates, in 2010 the number of people who prefer to live and work outside the city, increased 10 times due to high growth of traffic jams. For example, in 2009, the number of sales of apartments in the heart of St. Petersburg was about 28,6% of all sales - and this is in relation to data for 2010, when the acquisition amounted to only 16,2%.
According to surveys of the population in 2006, virtually all of Petersburg would like to live and work in the central part of the city. The beauty of the northern capital, bright reception and status, according to the citizens, promote good business. But by 2010, more than half the people prefer to work and premises outside the city. And it gives a good opportunity to increase real estate development outside the city.
Price for the apartments will also be noticeably lower than in the city. For example, one room apartment in a residential area is now 16000-18000. per month, whereas in the Leningrad region amount will be USD 12000-15000. month. Of course, roads and accommodation is not quite satisfy the demands of a carefree existence. However, for companies in developing real estate business is a good start for the improvement of these lands for productive work of companies and happy life of citizens.
